Forsan and Coahoma teams participated in the 5th Annual Howard County Bowl that took place last night, August 30th, at Memorial Stadium in Big Spring. The final score resulted in 24-14 with the Coahoma being named this year’s winner and bragging rights for the rest of the year.
This year’s event brought out an appearance by CBS 7’s Jay Hendricks, and a half-time performance by country artist Mark McKinney. Former NFL player Cedric Benson also made an appearance at this year’s Howard County Bowl.
Benson is currently working with The Cedric Benson Foundation, an organization with the mission is to connect passionate and experienced leaders with young athletes of all abilities in order to facilitate athletic, personal and mental health development in a positive and safe environment while exceeding customer expectations.
With all of this excitement, by far the most exciting thing was the fact that the Howard County Bowl was able to award $38,000 in scholarships to several Forsan and Coahoma Seniors who participated in this year’s event.
